I’m trying so hard to switch to Linux but it seems like every freaking time I try to install something, I need to do an hour of troubleshooting online. And to make it worse, each answer differs from the next.
And why oh why is the latest official Blender version not available from the Ubuntu software center? They seem to have only 2.66 which is ancient
Anyway, because the software center installed only 2.66 I now downloaded and extracted 2.69 manually. The download page said I should be able to just double click the “blender” file to run the program, but of course it gives me the following error:
“Could not display “blender”.
There is no application installed for excecutable files”
After googling around I saw someone suggesting I go to the file properties and mark it as executable. But the checkmark wont stay on no matter how many times I click!
Is Linux always this difficult?
